Although the Buffalo Bills have a great amount of young talent on their roster, that sometimes makes it hard for veteran talent to stick on the team. As a result, there are several veterans on Buffalo’s roster bubble going into 2014. With that said, here are five veterans who won’t make Buffalo’s 53-man roster.

Although T.J. Graham is an adequate NFL receiver, the fact is Buffalo just has too many good receivers on the roster right now for him to earn a roster spot. With guys like Sammy Watkins, Mike Williams, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin, there’s just no place for Graham.

Much like Graham, Marcus Easley falls victim to the amount of depth the Bills have at the receiver position. When you combine that depth with the fact the Easley has yet to make any sort of real impact at the NFL level, it’s easy to see why the Bills would want to part ways.

The fourth QB on Buffalo’s roster, Dennis Dixon isn't going to make the final cut for the Bills. Dixon is a camp arm and nothing more for the Bills.

Before the draft, Anthony Dixon looked like a virtual lock to make the Bills’ 53-man roster. But after the team traded for Bryce Brown, Dixon became expendable. With no skills that really stand out, Dixon’s days as a Bill are numbered.

When the Bills drafted Cyrus Kouandjio in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, it put Erik Pears’ future with the team at risk. But when the team selected Seantrel Henderson later in the draft, it all but guaranteed that Pears will be looking for work before the season starts.
